3.5 stars. The location is excellent, easy to walk to in the main old town area. Two of us had a private room with private bath before and after our MP hike. The building is older but well functioning. The breakfast is pay per item beyond basic toast, but the prices were so cheap it was fine. Could easily have a full cooked to order breakfast for very cheap.

The major complaint was the smokers and noise in the central courtyard. The first room we had on the ground floor faced in to the courtyard, and smoke and noise quickly went into the room when people were hanging out in the courtyard. They really should not allow smoking, there is not enough ventilation. The second room we had was on the 2nd floor and was better to avoid these issues.

Room Tip: Pick an upper floor private room to avoid smoke from the courtyard.

I got a private room with private bathroom with my friend in December. The weather was cold and probably that's the reason why the room smelled bad. Like it has been closed forever, you know?
The next day there was a guest of the hostel screaming her lungs out right outside of our room.
The breakfast was only the typical bread, butter and jelly. I felt hungry after a short time.
The location is amazing.

The hitchhikers has somewhat rustic but clean rooms. They were reasonably warm but also a bit noisy as the wooden doors face the inner courtyard. The courtyard itself is ok, not too cosy but also not bad. Location is excellent, only a block away from the main square.

We stayed here before and after our trip to Machu Picchu. This location is great. There are plenty of restaurants and a very short walk to the city center. The before stay was for three nights. We stayed in a private room downstairs. This room had an uncomfortable double bed that was slanted down head first, tiny bathroom, and flanked by the two common areas where guest could smoke filling our room with smoke. The after stay was much better. We were upstairs in a private and the beds were much better as well as ventilation. I would stay again but request a room upstairs.

The location of the hostel was fantastic. Only two blocks from the Plaza de Armas it was a great place for navigating around the city. We stayed in a three person room, which actually could have housed four quite comfortably, and found it very well equipped, the hot showers being a particular highlight. Breakfasts were included and there was complimentary coca tea at all times of the day which really helped with the altitude sickness. Would definitely recommend it to all who are visiting Cusco on a budget.

Room Tip: The three person room would probably be best for families.
